you really think too high of yourself, i'm not insulted, i only want you to see your mistake... my 1st comment that you've replied clearly stated that chaoticrazor "follow a phone that only has superior camera...." (there , i quote it...), and then you 'join in' by commenting me about good camera (as if no one knows about it...)... see the point now? or maybe your brain can't handle too much informations? or maybe you need your eyes checked?

Duh! you forgot the the words "why don't just buy a SLR Camera". The reason why it's so infuriating is because you mentioned the S4 then about apps that I didn't talk about. Dude my brain can't handle the information? How funny! or my eyes checked, uh bro I think you're the one who needs it checked for the reply you've been giving me. ;)

lol... since your brain really can't handle it, i really have to explain it word by word for you...
if you can read and understand my 1st comment, i said that chaoticrazor "follow a phone that ONLY has superior camera... why don't just buy a SLR Camera? or tell your beloved nokia to stop producing smartphone and go produce some camera instead". notice my sarcasm calling 920 only as a phone not a smartphone, and i make the word 'only' in uppercase now so its easier for you to understand... thats why i tell him to tell nokia to produce a camera instead trying to produce a smartphone, and tell him to buy SLR (lots of SLR are cheaper than 920 and produce way better result, and then he can spend 10 bucks buying an old phone that can make phone calls and sending text) since he ONLY want a superior cam... i bring those apps because its a part of a SMARTPHONE, which suitable for people who wants 'everything' on their smartphone, not ONLY a superior cam.

unlike you, i write my comments carefully and put some thought into it instead only accusing somebody missing a point and in the end it is you the one that missing the point...

The company is on a high peaks of sales, why would Samsung fans cry or be jealous™

Sad but true its the Nokia and BB fans that are crying cause both of them are on a sinking ship®

Regardless of all falls.. Nokia is still the king in photography and maps. This is the fact. Atleast give credit to them.

huh??

i, myself, truthfully and vividly stating that i know from the time that samsung announced gs4, it doesnt have OIS..
and i know that nokia has d best mobile camera tech as what ive said in my other comments here in PA..i have Nokia Pureview 808..

im not complaining,
im asking.. i HAVE A QUESTION IN MIND that what is the reason why samsung cant provide OIS?
my head aches with fanboys like u..u always like battles, thats why battle is always drivng ur mind.. and if u r referring on how i defend the real results in the camera comparison before, nothing has changed,,

leave it, can anyone tell me the reason why samsung cant provide OIS?..

Look at their market share. Look at the $$$ they're raking in. OIS would be nice, but clearly they are doing just fine without it.

dude... what cave do you live in??? OIS is hardware. s4 has image stabilization,but only in software

920 has OIS,thus hardware. THIS IS THE POWER OF HARDWARE

You say that every flagship now has OIS, for example which flagshis has OIS???
As far as I know only Nokia Lumia 920 and HTC One has OIS.

Dude! How come you talk so much against the 920 but don't know much about the OIS?
It's hardware oriented...
It has springs, minature springs, within the sensor that minimizes movements and shakes.

say what? all smartphones have image stabilisation including S4. mostly using software for it.
but in nokia circumstances, it includes HARDWARE image stabilization.so it has great OIS.

and going back to your first comment. samsung doesnt put hardware ois but only software because maybe for slim factor? i dont know. ask samsung.

so another LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOOOLOLOOLOOOLOLOLOLOLOL​OLOOLOOLOOLOOLOLOOOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLL for you :)

I am guessing because it isn't worth it. I personally think that they made the right choice. 7.9mm or OIS? 7.9mm every day of the week. I am not a fan of how the only two phones with OIS are the biggest brick in the world with a 4.5 inch screen and the other is the biggest phone with a 4.7 inch screen in the world. While the GS4 is either the smallest or second smallest(next to the Xperia ZL depending on which dimensions you value most) 5 inch phone in world.

I prefer being compact as possible over things like OIS and an extra front facing speaker.

so basically your saying you prefer form over function....this is the start of the sheep mentality believing you dont need something they didnt include

most reasonable people prefer a comprimise between form and function and that so called brick 920 hits the spot well where as others like me couldnt care about size and weight as i can manage to pick up my 808 with one hand.....seems me been able to do that is an acheivement seeing how you lot whine its too heavy lol
